Cranbrook’s first pub – Cranberry Farm – looks set to open in early May.

Hall & Woodhouse brewery – the company operating the pub – say construction on the plot on the corner of Court Royale and London Road is now ‘well under way’.

The brewery is putting £3.25million into the project. When completed, the pub will create around 35 new jobs.

Hall & Woodhouse has also explained the thinking behind the pub’s name.

It follows a pub-naming competition – held last year in conjunction with Cranbrook Town Council and the Cranbrook Herald – although ‘Cranberry Farm’ was not one of the names put forward by local residents.

“We’re very excited to have been chosen to develop the new public house in Cranbrook, which we have named Cranberry Farm,” said David Hoare, development director at Hall & Woodhouse.

“This name was chosen following a naming competition run in conjunction with the local council. ‘Cranberry’ refers to the residents of Cranbrook – who refer to themselves as ‘Cranberries’ – and ‘Farm’ refers to the deeply traditional Devon building that we’re seeking to create.

“Construction of the pub is now well under way and we expect to open our doors in early May 2017.

“Our approach is to create country pubs that will be cherished by the communities they serve from the day they open and for the next 240 years.

“Our investment in Cranbrook will be over £3.25million in all, and we will create around 35 jobs.”

The pub has just started advertising for staff. It’s looking for ‘lovely local people’ to join its team.
